This collection of The Dazz Band's finest cuts is off the hook! All the jams are here,including "Keep It Live","Swoop(I'm Yours)","Party Right Here","On The One For Fun","Joystick","Let It all Blow",and the immensely popular,"Let It Whip". The Remastered Sound is Superior and delivers the Dazz Band's Mind-Blowing Funk just right. The only disappointments about this awesome compilation are the omissions of "Cheek To Cheek", "Heartbeat" & "Hot Spot",other than that this CD is where the Groove is at! In the eighties the Dazz Band ruled the r&b charts with their electrifying Synth Funk Sound. The Dazz Band had the style & the slamming cuts. They were a high-profile,Cleveland-based Funk Unit with a Powerhouse of Talent. Dazz Songs were Flowing with Creativity. "Skip" Martin & the Dazz Band had the Jams that could Strike Up a Sinister Groove Like Lightning,Pack Dancefloors to the maximum & Keep that Funky Energy Circulating at all times. They Single-Handedly brought the Bold,New Wave of Electro-Funk to a wide audience and it caused a Sensational Dance Craze. Dazz built & centered their grooves around Synthesizer Riffs and Liquid & Fluid Basslines with Exciting Effects. Besides that the Dazz Songsters had a knack for churning out classic funk ballads that hit the Sweet & Soft Spots of R&B Lovers,such as "Knock Knock", "More Than Love","Now That I Have You",& "When You Needed Roses". The Dazz Band & their unique brand of funk had an incredible impact on listeners for years to come & changed the face of Popular Black Music forever. That's why the Dazz Band are Legends of Funk & Soul. Somebody really ought to re-issue the Dazz Band's Unforgettable Funk Albums from their Popularity Peak like "Keep It Live"(1982),"On The One"(1983),"JoyStick"(1983),"JukeBox"(1984) & "Hot Spot" (1985).Read more ›

The resurgence of Funk is a definite plus. We get to buy all the old jams we've lost. The only problem is that "greatest hits" collections often dont give an accurate picture of what made a group special. This disc is fantastic, all tracks are classics, however where are the great slow jams that defined the Dazz Band sound, "Dont Gamble With My Love," "Heartbeat," "More Than Love," "When You Needed Roses," "Bad Girl," and of course "A Love Song." These were great songs showcasing beautiful melodies, great harmonies, and standout virtuosso performances from Skip and Pierre. They were also the kinds of songs that wanna-be vocalists could only dream about singing (i.e. karaoke-proof).
Yes, Dazz Band was a "baddass Funk-collective" who could ignite the dance floor like no other, but they could also "sing" and croon like you wouldn't believe.
So if you're a DJ this CD will provide you with great riffs to sample. And it is a great collection ever destined to re-ignite the dancefloor through endless "DJ" remixes, but in my opinion it lacks the true essence of Dazz Band.

Best known for "Let It Whip," the Dazz Band showed that they had the skills to put down soulful, funky music!

Tracklisting is as follows:

01. Let It Whip - 04:47**
02. Keep It Live (On the K.I.L) - 5:01
03. JoyStick - 5:23**
04. I Might As Well Forget About Loving You - 03:23
05. Party Right Here - 4:04
06. To the Roof - 5:26
07. Swoop (I'm Yours) - 3:36
08. Invitation to Love - 5:02
09. Knock! Knock! - 4:48
10. Let It All Blow - 5:54**
11. On the One for Fun - 4:31

** - Indicates Stand Out Tracks

For the true fans, a few of their actual albums are out there and available (on Amazon - of course, and elsewhere).

This is a good collection for those (like me) who wish to get a strong sampling of this group!

I rate "20th Century Masters: Millennium Collection...The Dazz Band"...Four stars!

Without a doubt this CD brought back memories when rollerskating, in and out of the rink, during the early 80s, was the "in" thing to do. My four favorite songs I can "roll, bounce and skate" to are: "Let it Whip" a dance-club classic, "Keep It Live (On the K.I.L.)," "Joystick" with its heartbeating thumps, and "Swoop (I'm Yours)." These are fast-paced songs that could really give your heart a good cardio.

I'm on a hunt to restock my old school and funk LP's. Picked up this inexpensive and wonderfully remastered compilation of hits from the Dazz Band. It's terrific to hear the funk power of "Let It Whip", "To The Roof", "Joystick", "Party Right Here", and all the other monster hits on one disc. The remastered sound is slamming! "Let it Whip" is a song that never grows old despite being written almost 20 yrs ago. The thumping bass line makes you wanna dance all night long. Long Live the Dazz Band!

From the Grammy winning monster funk 'Let It Whip',electro-groove 'Joystick' to synth-funk 'Let It All Blow', outstanding slow-jam 'Invitation To Love', this cd deserves top mark!
Check out the E,W &F - ish 'I might as well forget about lovin you' by Kinsman Dazz, before they formed Dazz Band . 'Shake It Up' should have been on this great collection. An essential collection by our favourite synth-funk unit!
